This issue gathers stories of young women being told what to do, what to wear, what to look like. And they show us how important it is to question these rules and regulations that others try to impose on us. Whether young ladies revolt against a sexist prom dress code or girls mirror the body image their mothers struggle with, the problem is real and global. From Instagram envy to sanitary pad advertisements, girls cross the path of unrealistic standards all their life. We hope these stories inspire you to question these standards and join the growing league of those who dissent.
With strength and hope,
